We are here now too. Weather felt HOT today. Right before we left (like one day) forecast was saying it would be cloudy and barely make it into the 70s. It hit 80 I think today, was very sunny and extremely humid. I go in January to avoid this type of weather, lol! A lot of people waking around in long sleeves because (like me) they thought it was going to be cooler. If I had brought the right clothes I'd probably be fie but the forecast has changed just since I packed 2 days ago! We still had an absolute ball though....the weather is my only complaint. Everything else has been amazing!

Animal Kingdom

Woke up at 6 and got a taxi to AKL.
Boma for breakfast at 750. Met our expectations and more! Great food with an omelette station and ham and turkey carving station. Bus ride to AKL was next. Safari Kilimanjaro which was great since it was the first thing in the morning. Saw a baby elephant and rhino. Kids enjoyed it! We had a great tour guide we got some great shots since he stopped at the right times Rafikis planet watch (Train ride) was next.
It had a petting zoo, kids got touch the pigs. Very neat for younger kids. had some other things and got to meet Rafiki. Headed to the baby care center (placed in a great spot).
Finding Nemo show was great. One of my favorites. Think it was a little different from last time we saw it. Not sure though. Got questioned by a woman behind us on how we do it with 3 young kids. Patience is key! Ate lunch at Pizzafari. Split a QD between the wife and me. Pizza here was way better then Boardwalk by a landslide! We did camp Mickey and Minnie. Saw a bunch of characters and got funnel cake. Yum! We headed to down town Disney. Took the bus to Saratoga Springs then to DTD. Took a hour!! Met my grandma (snow birds). My grandma insisted in get the free chocolate at Ghirardelli. We did Wolfgang Puck Express for dinner. It was the best bang for our buck for quick dinning credit. My spaghetti and meatballs was $16. Wood fire pizza there too and free refill sodas! We headed to do a train ride. We went to Once Upon Toy for new potato head pieces. Wife picked it and I think she was more into it then anyone there, trying to "jam" every piece in the box as possible. We went to Goofy Candy store for some fudge and the kids picked out a couple snacks with our snack credits. On bus now to BC and MK tomorrow for rope drop at 9am.

Frustrated with quick dining

I just found out that we can use QS credits for ALL adult meals! So I have been getting crap QS options for kid meals that I could've been getting adult portions and choices. Well I will be not getting any kid meals again with QS.

Magic Kingdom day!

Took off to MK and took us just about 20-25 from room to MK. We were the 3rd family at regular rope drop. Waiting to get in! First time doing this.

After the rope drop we headed to the Princess meet and greet. Nolan had just as much fun as Emma. He gave them hugs and couldn't stop talking about while waiting for our cin rolls from Main Street Bakery. Baby care center next and to Fantasy Land. Merry Go Round (was liked right on), Small World (5 min wait) got a front row spot and Harper enjoyed it the most!! She was clapping and dancing the whole time.
Saw the step sisters and it was a must for DW. Rode under the sea and met Ariel in the grotto while I waited in line for be our guest! Be our Guest was about 30 min from start till we sat down and we were done in about a hour. Food was great we had the steak sandwiches and the kids had ham sandwiches. The triple chocolate cup cake and french onion soup was great! Be able to get your own drinks is very nice. They give you a "rose" and they cart your food to you by finding your location with the rose. Very efficient. They said the wait time was 1 hour 15 minutes. Ha! Mad Tea Party was great for all of us. We rode it together as I spun it fast lol. No wait for this. We got the Dumbo fast pass after. Rode train around the park twice. Went to the circus souvenir and Emma played a circus game in front with a CM. We went back to ride Dumbo. Started to rain but not too bad. Headed over to Frontier Land and got caught in the parade at 3pm. Decided to stay out because of traffic and watch the parade today instead of tomorrow. Dream Come True is the parade name. Visited Tiana since she was our last princess to see. Went to the baby center for a recharge. We rode the Pirates of Caribbean it was about at 30 min wait. Nolan hide in my armpit and Harper enjoyed it like the It's a Small World. We were running late so we ran to our reservations in the rain. We had to wait 25 minutes to get seated. We were eating at Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh. Nolan and Emma loved the characters and Harper was scared but at the end Harper started to warm up and she was waving especially to Pooh. The beef was real good! Overall it was a great one credit sit down but the wait was a killer. We were going to do country bear jamboree but got stuck with the electric parade. We had front row spots at the end if the parade and it was a great view. Harper was clapping and dancing in my arms. She got a lot of attention from a lot of characters in the parade. We were going to do the fireworks tomorrow but ended up watching them. It was great! Music and the story with the fireworks. We bolted out about a minute before the fireworks ended to try to bet some of the crowd. Got to our bus but had to deal with 2 scooters getting on first. They take up 6 seats (3 a piece) and one seat per rider. 8 seats for 2 people!!! Crazy. Kids are sleeping now and another load of laundry is in. It's only one floor down from our room. Going to play some arcade games from the free tokens next. Sitting on our huge balcony with the wife MK tomorrow and we changed California Grille with GF cafe for dinner.

Magic Kingdom

On the bus at 815 and for the second day in the row to MK THE bus was "waiting" for us. Lol. This is our latest start of our trip so far.
I hurried over to the Main St. Bakery since yesterday we waited about 10-15 minutes. I was the first one in today We wanted to do something for Nolan. I took him and Emma on the Speedway. I got a rider swap for later and since I had both kids we went around twice. They have us a flag so I could switch the drivers while I used the gas pedal. Nolan was Mr. One hander. Emma saw were close to Mad Tea Party so she wanted to go on. We walked right on the ride. We headed to Barnstormer. Crissy took Emma and I took Nolan. Nolan just made the height requirements of 36". We took a pit stop to the baby care center (nursing ). Off to frontier land next! Nice and hot here and crowds are low.

Thanks from Rochester for your report!!

We are also from Rochester, NY and will be at WDW tomorrow! So it's great to be able to read about your experiences there, especially to clue us in to the weather and crowds. I enjoy looking at your photos--your children are so cute!--and I can also see how other people are dressing for the weather. There will be nine of us on this trip. We're also flying out of Buffalo due to it being less expensive. There will be me, DH, DS19, and DD and her family of her DH, DD7, DD4, DD2 and DS6months. We are staying in three rooms, at POP Century for the first time. It's the children's first time at WDW, and we can't wait!! We have an ADR set up for every day.

I hope you keep having a terrific time!

Thanks! I would love to do so much more but we are here to make the kids happy. Crowd level today was great at MK. Rides were a breeze! Buffalo was out choice because of price as well. Hope you have a great trip! Let me know if you have any questions.
